Effortless elegance is easy when you channel French chic
Everyone needs a space to escape from the outside world, and creating a bedroom inspired by the timeless elegance of a French château is now easier (and more affordable) than ever.
But how? Well, the luxurious new Ville de Provence collection from Sainsbury’s is full of stylish interior buys to help transform your bedroom into a sanctuary of peace.
Think vintage-inspired pieces, blending pretty florals and chalky, soft pinks, greens and greys across traditional French soft furnishings, like rose-printed bed linens and clean white linen pillows.
Choose decorative cushions embroidered with flowers or woven damask, and drape a shell-pink throw over the end of the bed to add instant colour and warmth.
To finish your French country look, display picture frames, fleur-de-lis bookends and mantel clocks on rustic wooden drawers, then set out oval mirrors, perfume bottles and trinket boxes. Finally, light a candle in a rose tea-light holder, sit down…and relax.
Of course, no French country home would be complete without fresh flowers. Try a faux floral rose arrangement, displayed in a delicate glass bud vase.
